NEW VW Transporter T5/T6 Rear-End Kit | AirRide Custom Plus

£735.00 inc. VAT

This is a rear end air suspension kit for the VW Transporter T5 Van. This kit fits the T26, T28, T30, and T32 models of both 2-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-drive versions. It will fit all models from 2003 to the present day.

The rear-end kit is very simple to install, using just a few bolts each side, and is fully reversible if required (provided care is taken with installation). It is inflated via Schrader valves (tyre valves) and nothing extra is required to get the kit working.

Uses 7-inch bags at the front and 6.5-inch bags at the rear. The rear suspension will drop the tyres inside your Transporter’s arches but the front struts are OEM struts and therefore the same height as the originals – this limits the drop at the front. This kit is focussed on offering the best ride possible for your T5/T6 and is best driven at practical heights. It is ideal for motorhomes.

On-board air kits, including a compressor, air tank and air control, are optional extras and can be selected from the drop down list or purchased later as an add-on. Full kits are also available for front and rear (see ‘Options’ tab below for more info).

Description

This is an AirRide full rear-end air suspension kit, which will allow your vehicle to lift or lower. The kit totally replaces the original coil spring.  We manufacture these kits ourselves and as such are confident that this is the highest-quality and most reliable air suspension kit on the market for your T5. Our kit:

  • is a practical bolt-on installation which is rated as DIY or local garage fit
  • Improves stability and handling and reduces roll
  • Recovers lost suspension motion to improve ride quality
  • Lifts sagging vehicles to reduce or prevent grounding
  • Is superb for help with towing
  • Can help pass an MOT if your vehicle is low (as a lot of motorhomes are)
  • Can help re-rating for heavier capacity on some vehicles

It includes:

  • Laser cut/welded upper and lower mounts which fit directly in place of the original metal spring
  • Proper automotive-grade air springs (air bags). Bags have at least six inches of lift potential
  • Specifically-designed brackets, mounted at points able to take the load – in the same place as the original spring
  • A two-year extended warranty (terms apply)

If you are unsure of the correct fitment, please email or call.

Please do not assume that because you phoned last week and found it was in stock that it is still in stock.

Warranty

AirRide Sales Limited offer a warranty on AirRide products for a period of 2 years from time of purchase. This warranty is limited to the original purchaser and subject to registration at the time of fitting. If you fail to register then a 1 year warranty is offered.

If the kit does not appear to fit – STOP and call us, as a vehicle misidentification may have occurred. Kits will be accepted for return and exchange only if they are undamaged. The buyer must cover the return postage.

Options

AirRide kits can be supplied with or without air control (otherwise known as air management or On-Board Air (OBA)).

Air control allows you to get the very best from your kit at all times. It allows the ride height to be adjusted for road, weather and load conditions, and for those who experience grounding issues it allows the absolute maximum lift to be achieved when needed (i.e. for ferries, petrol stations and rough site entrances). If in doubt, please contact us via email or phone.

No compressor, no tank

You can have an AirRide kit with no air control system but this is not recommended. With this option you will receive the air bags, brackets and struts required for a basic air suspension system, but no compressor or tank, as without some form of control system the compressor and tank would not be able to function correctly.

Manual Paddle Control (MPC)

MPC comes with an aluminium, 100% duty cycle compressor with up to 200 PSI and an air tank. It is controlled with four buttons, one for each air bag. The buttons act like electric window switches, meaning you can either raise or lower the amount of pressure in each air bag by pressing up and down on each switch.

Digital computer system

The computer system comes with an aluminium 100% duty cycle compressor with up to 200 PSI and an air tank. It electronically controls the amount of pressure in each air bag. This can be controlled either with a wired controller or a phone app.  With the computer, you can adjust your car to certain pre-set heights and alter the vehicle’s height while on the move. This is also the easiest system to install; it is the most highly-recommended option.

Other options

If you would prefer an air control system other to those listed, please feel free to call or e-mail us. We are happy to discuss your personal requirements and make sure you get the air control system that is right for you.
